    Hi

    I started thai resently and I would really appreciate some advice with gloves. For a few weeks I have done researching and reading reviews. Most of the popular Thai brands (Windys, Twins, Fairtex, Top King) seem fine to me. Price max 120$. Where I am struggling is the right fit, because I have longer fingers. I don't have a store with a good Thai gloves selection where I live. There aren't any Thai brands 16 oz mentioned above in my class. I tried some 16oz gloves (without wrapping) and the pocket seems a bit short and the thumb hits the wall of the pocket.

    My middle finger 9cm 3,6"
    From palm to the tip of the middle finger 21cm 8,3"
    Thumb 7,5cm 3,2"
    Palm circum. - Large 23cm 9cm

    Could somebody varify with the same size hands, that Twins, Top King, Fairtex, Windys (or some other quality Thai glove) is ok for You.

    Thank you in advance

    Personally I say skip the Thai brands and go with a Boxing glove. I highly recommend Sabas:

    www.sabasfightgear.com

    You could email them asking about the fit based on your hand size.

    I find Fairtex and Boon a bit bigger in the hand compartment. I have average sized hands and find the loose. Avoid Top King and Yokkao would be my guess. I have both and find them tight and top king are long wristed (which i like). Fairtex Mexican style are a bit tighter than normal fairtex too

    Forget Twins and Too King.

    Fairtex could be ok. My hands are 7 1/2"+ and still have room in the 16oz.

    But like another poster said, you should get custom gloves.

    Not much gloves will fit you IMO.

    Bonne chance.
